1. No stylus. A capacitive stylus would work I guess, the Flyer is n-trig. I have a Flyer too, if you really really want pen, the Flyer is second to none.
I'm looking into tablets for my work. As a quick description, we deal with digital document storage (think of a digital filing cabinet) and we want to be able to offer nice tablet solutions for viewing said documents, as well as signing digital documents (ie, a client filling out digital paperwork at a doctor office with a signature). A few questions:
1.) Another tablet I am looking at is the HTC flyer (http://www.htc.com/w...lets/htc-flyer/) mainly due to its stylus and note taking features, does the archos come with a stylus? if no, can you test a stylus on it if you have one handy?
1.a) If you have any experience with the flyer (or have watched the intro vid), how does the archos compare with its meeting / note taking features?
2.) How is the accuracy of the Touch Screen? If you were to sign your name into an application (digital ink note pad, a paint app, etc), is your signature accurate? is it legible? Is there any input lag if signing your name quickly?
3.) How capable is the web-browser? is it capable of displaying a PDF in a frame of a webpage, or would that PDF open in adobe reader?
4.) Build Quality - You mentioned that its Cheap but not Nasty, Plasticy, but feels solid. Do you think its build quality would stand up to daily use around an office? Do you think there are any weaknesses in the build that could be problematic with excessive use (ie, any flimsy port covers, back casing (cover?) with fragile "notches" that lock it in place, etc)
Im sure ill have more questions at some point :-D
2. Not tried, but would you really do that with your finger?
3. PDFs will open in a PDF reader.
4. Yes, I think it would be OK. The 3G dongle cover is kinda 'lightweight', but feels good enough.
